Here’s what you need…

  • 2 beaten eggs
  • 1/2 cup blanched almond flour
  • 1/4 cup flax meal
  • 1/2 cup onion, finely minced
  • 2 Tablespoons coconut milk, canned, full fat
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 12 oz ground cooked ham
  • 12 oz ground raw pork
  • 1/3 cup coconut crystals
  • 2/3 cup organic, no-sugar-added ketchup
  • 3 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  1. In a large bowl combine eggs, almond flour, flax meal, onion, coconut milk, Dijon, and pepper. Add ground ham and ground pork; mix well. Shape into 18 balls, using about 1/4 cup mixture for each ball. Place ham balls in a lightly greased 2-quart rectangular baking dish.
  2. In a bowl combine coconut crystals, ketchup, vinegar, and Dijon. Stir until the coconut crystals dissolve. Pour a spoonful over each ham ball.
